Vidal not happy with Barca role but no problem with Valverde – football news

Arturo Vidal admitted he is not happy with his limited playing time at Barcelona, though the midfielder insisted he would tell Ernesto Valverde directly if he had a problem with the head coach.

Vidal has been in the headlines after reacting angrily to his benching in Barcelona’s 4-2 win over Tottenham in the Champions League last week – the Chile international using social media to voice his frustration.

An angry emoji was posted on social media by Vidal – who arrived from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the off-season – following the match at Wembley.

Vidal was also absent from Valverde’s starting XI for Barca’s 1-1 draw away to Valencia in LaLiga on Sunday.

Listos para mañana!!

A post shared by Arturo Vidal (@kingarturo23oficial) on

Asked about the situation at Camp Nou, the 31-year-old – who is in Miami for Chile’s friendly against Peru on Friday before heading to Queretaro to face Mexico four days later – told reporters: “I am not happy but if I have a problem with the coach I will say it to his face.

“How am I going to be happy if I don’t play, and me of all people. I am someone that has always fought, that has been in the best teams in the world, that has won everything and who wants to continue winning at Barcelona.

“I am fine physically and happy. In the past few games I have been a little irritated but that’s how it is, we will keep battling, there are a lot of important games ahead and we will see.”

Vidal was quizzed specifically on his social media activity after quickly deleting a message, which read, “You don’t need to fight with Judases, they end up hanging themselves.”

“When I have a problem or I am angry then I go straight to the coach and I speak to him,” he said. “You can have various reasons for doing these things.

“It [the Judas message] was nothing to do with anything sporting and I took it down to stop people speculating. There are personal things, jokes which you can put on social media and people take the wrong way.”

Valverde not worried by ‘angry’ Vidal’s benching reaction – football news

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde says he does not know if Arturo Vidal was left angry by the decision to leave him out of the starting line-up against Tottenham.

Vidal was reportedly furious not to be named in the first XI for the 4-2 Champions League win at Wembley on Wednesday, in which Valverde reverted to a four-man midfield.

An angry emoji was posted on social media by the Chile international, although it was later removed and followed up by a Twitter message in which he said: “Never give up! The best is yet to come.”

Vidal has struggled to force his way into the starting line-up since joining from Bayern Munich and is reportedly growing frustrated with his lack of involvement, but Valverde appears unconcerned by his latest reaction.

“We’re a team. He hasn’t told me anything. I don’t know if he’s angry about the game or about a domestic accident,” Valverde told a news conference.

Barca’s win over Spurs was inspired by Lionel Messi, who scored twice and played an important role in the goals from Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic.

Valverde admits playing in Europe probably encourages the Argentina star to show greater “enthusiasm”, but he thinks this is true of all of his players.

“I think he’s the same every game,” he said. “As far as enthusiasm goes, yes, certain games maybe bring more out of the players. There was an incredible rhythm to the game the other day and that brings more out of every player, not just Messi.

“But, mentality wise, I see Leo going into every game the same.”

Barca face Valencia at Mestalla on Sunday in their final match before the international break.

There have been concerns Luis Suarez will miss the match due to a knee injury, for which he will start treatment on Monday, but Valverde hopes to have him involved.

“He’s training with us today, he didn’t yesterday because it was part of his recovery. He’s part of the plans. The idea is for him to play,” Valverde added.

Valverde, Busquets and Vidal criticise Lenglet dismissal – football news

Ernesto Valverde, Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal were unanimous in criticising the decision to send off Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet after a VAR review in Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Girona.

Lenglet was dismissed during the first half of his maiden La Liga appearance for Barca after clashing with Pere Pons, with Girona striker Cristhian Stuani striking twice to turn Sunday’s game around at Camp Nou.

Replays indicated Lenglet caught Pons with his elbow but, despite Gerard Pique’s header salvaging a point for last season’s champions, Valverde was unhappy with the decision.

“The red card changed the game,” said the head coach, whose side remain above Real Madrid at LaLiga’s summit on goal difference. “Until then we had it under control, then they equalised before the break and we had to come back.

“I have not seen the replay on television. The elbow is the first red card in which the player who was fouled asks for forgiveness.

“I suppose that the VAR does justice and I have the feeling that it is not a red card. There may be some contact, but I do not think it was an aggression.”

Busquets accepted there was contact between Lenglet and Pons but disagreed with the eventual decision by referee Jesus Gil Manzano.

“Until the dismissal we went well, then, with one less, we have an uphill battle,” Busquets said. 

“We tried, we had the draw and we looked for victory. But with one less it was very difficult.

“Maybe there is contact, you can see it in the image, but the ball is on the ground. 

“It’s a natural movement that does it, it’s not aggression. The VAR would have to be used correctly and with the same criteria.”

Arturo Vidal, who set up Lionel Messi for Barca’s opening goal, agreed with Busquets and Valverde over the Lenglet call.

“We were very sad because we deserved the win,” Vidal said.

“Something like this cannot happen in a game because it determines the result.

“We saw the play on the video and I think the VAR should be to help, not to harm.”
